Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines immediately announced that their flights to and from Taiwan will resume after the government lifted the travel ban on Friday.

The government previously imposed a ban to China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Taiwan has welcomed the decision of the Philippine government.

“I’m glad the Philippines government lifted its travel ban on #Taiwan. @MOFA_Taiwan thanks all who helped in the process. #Taiwan & the #Philippines are close neighbors & good friends. Diplomacy works. Mabuhay!” Foreign Affairs Minister Jaushieh Wu said in a tweet.

The Manila Economic Cultural Office in Taiwan also expressed its gratitude in lifting the ban.

“We thank the IATF for their open-mindedness that allowed the reconsideration of the travel ban on Taiwan. MECO and the 160,000 overseas Filipinos here are very thankful for their quick action, and the President for his openness and concern,” MECO said in a statement.

Cebu Pacific announced the resumption of the following flights to Taiwan:
